Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha is a fun collection of notable artifacts from the golden age of arcade shmups. Most of the games included are a blast, one of which is a gem that’s never been available on console before, and the whole package is a better value than buying each game piecemeal from the Nintendo Switch eShop. I would have appreciated more effort in the presentation, but mostly I'm just glad these gems have been dug up and are taking advantage of the Switch’s unique capabilities.

Doing the math, buying the bundle alone will save you £5.95, along with the convenience of swapping between each title without having to revert back to the console’s home screen. However, as far as compilations go and the extra features that usually come with them, it’s hard to justify the vanilla presentation when others out there have made much more of an effort at a lower price point.

Truth be told, this is an extensive package of quality shmups that are sure to keep genre enthusiasts in a frenzy for hours. That said, there are a million shooters, and this package doesn’t offer anything that hasn’t been done already. Still, Psikyo Shooting Stars Alpha is a more affordable way to get all these games at a lower cost.
